How about Danko for your heart? It is often described as semi determinant and is listed as 61 days on Victory Seeds. I can't speak from personal experience yet, but am growing it this year. Reviews look very good and it has the story of brave Danko who tore out his own heart to save his people... what's not to like.

For an indeterminate heart, I have grown Fish Lake for several years and it is always the earliest large tomato in my garden. It also gets great reviews and I enjoy it and is what I've offered for my local PTA plant sale. I've decided to try some other hearts so am growing Kosovo, Danko and a few others to test this year, but I can definitely recommend Fish Lake for an early productive heart.

Everyone's conditions are different, and actually, every year seems different for me, lol. But Sophies Choice and Azoychka are now my standards for early tomatoes. However, I use them to grow in pots away from the main garden. It allows me to have a few extra plants than I can fit in my small garden, but it also makes them even earlier since the pots warm up faster and are portable enough to move or cover in a cold snap. What might very well make the difference in my experience compared to yours, and an even bigger reason I grow them in pots away from the main garden, is that if I have a big problem that spreads in the main garden where they may touch and all share the same soil, they are isolated from it and I still get some tomatoes. Early, protected, and insurance. So to be honest, I can't really give an opinion on disease resistance in a normal garden.
